I had the same thing going on around 33 weeks of pregnancy where I was measuring 39 weeks. In my case, the baby was mostly in a transverse or breech presentation so I wanted to get him flipped around so I started seeing a chiro for that every other day. I also upped my water intake to 4 litres a day...which for me is a LOT of water. I also used homeopathic Nat Mur which also seemed to help. I didn't want to go straight to dandelion root due to its potential overall...

It does have a lot of static but once you get the hang of it, you can listen without the extra interference coming through.
No waterbirths in hospitals here sadly. Ingham will let you labor in the tub, but will have you get out to push. Sparrow has no tubs, so it's not an option there. The homebirth midwives in this area or the GBC are the only waterbirth options. I'm sorry.

I try to limit myself to one MSG-loaded snack a week because when I'm not pregnant I don't eat it at all. I haven't found anything else that fulfills the craving either. I do too. I had ramen for lunch to satisfy my MSG fix.
